simply put, the Haunted Mansion is eeriely dazzling. Theming and special effects are excellent, espically with the Mansion's recent refurb. Not to be missed.
Please, people, if you're going to attempt to take pictures, TURN YOUR FLASH OFF! Bright flashes of light RUIN the special effects for you and everyone around you. You might as well not take pictures at all, because without a flash all your pictures will stink.

One of the best rides at Magic Kingdom. I hope it stays forever. The special effects still hold on even till this day. My favorite scene is the ghost bride with the glowing heart.

Excellent dark ride that truely is a Disney classic. The theming inside and outside of the house is incredible and really gives the ride an eerie atmosphere. All of the special effects were exceptionally well done and the ride isnt scary at all, but instead just pure fun. I especially loved the part where the ghost comes into the car and the ride is very long as well.

Dont remember a lot of this ride.
ill write out of little memory.
I remember a elevator bringing you somewhere and the driving through a room with many faded characters that were to resemble ghosts which were cool.
And a door banging open and closed.
Thats about it that i remember i just remember it being a good interesting ride

The Haunted Mansion at Walt Disneys Magic Kingdom is probably one of the best rides at the park. Opened in 1971 it remains one of those untouchable attractions (meaning, a ride that must ALWAYS be at the Magic Kingdom) at the Magic Kingdom sitting along side classics such as Pirates of the Carribean and Splash Mountain.

Now, I havent been on the California version so I cannot compare the two but, as a stand alone ride, its excellent.

But why is it so great?
First off, the special effects are excellent. It probably has the best special effects of all the rides at MK.

Secondly, the atmosphere is very good. The scenery, the sound effects, the Ghost Host (voiced by the great Paul Frees), and a wonderful collection of ghosts and ghouls (including the busts singing Grim Grinning Ghosts) make the atmosphere delightfully creepy.

Is it worth waiting over an hour to go on? Id have to say, like most of the rides at Disney, no. This is a Fast Pass attraction for sure. Dont wait over 30 minutes to get on. Its too short for that long of a wait.

Will the little ones like it? Id say kids over 8 should be fine but smaller ones may be frightened.

So, in conclusion, its a classic and a must see on a trip to the Magic Kingdom.

And wow... just... wow... I saw the new and improved version of The Haunted Mansion on October 12th 2007. It had vastly improved sound quality and a lot of the special effects were fixed.

Okay, I will admit that the older version of the ride was a bit run-down and a few of the effects looked dated but it was still excellent and most of the effects were fine.

But man, theyve really gone to town on this one. Madame Leota really floats, they added in a new room (the "Endless Staircase", the wires are not visible anymore on the floating instruments, theres a new "wedding" room with some cool scenery and a fixed bride, and the sound quality is vastly improved.

So yes, still an excellent ride. One of the best at Disney.

I give this ride a 10/10.

I love the mansion! Its appearance on the outside is amazing its spooky and cool. I love the set up of the cars, they move around so you can see everything. The only reason this is getting an 8 is because it scares younger kids easily, i went on with my neice and she was terrified

Haunted Mansion is a masterpiece of eerie ambience and total attention to detail. I love the narration. The Ghost Host really pulls this attraction together into something special. I found some of his silly jokes hilarious. As with all great dark rides you can reride this over and over and still notice new details.

Update: I recently rode the revamped Haunted Mansion. Ill give nothing away, but some of the updated effects are spectacular. Great work!
